Information for Huta’s neighbours

Huta Warszawa (current name ArcelorMittal Warszawa) has been producing steel continuously since 1957. Its activity consists of smelting scrap metal in an electric furnace into liquid steel, which is then cast in the so-called billets and rolled into steel bars in various dimensions.

The plant has undergone a thorough modernisation and significantly reduced the impact of production on the environment.

Huta ArcelorMittal Warszawa complies with all the standards set out in the Integrated Permit. They define, inter alia, the permissible levels of air emissions (dust, gases) and noise emissions.
However, when deciding to be close to the plant, it is worth remembering the following facts:

  • The steelworks is a large heavy industry plant that works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and produces about 600,000 tons of steel per year.
  • The steelworks has 38 km of railway tracks (including 86 switches and 25 crossings); operates 4 locomotives and 86 carriages. Every day around 9:00 and 3:00 p.m., two scheduled trains arrive at Huta, bringing scrap metal and putting empty wagons to load finished products. In addition, both scrap and finished products are transported around the plant several times a day (day and night).
  • Several hundred trucks enter and leave Huta every day.
  • Even in compliance with the applicable noise emission standards, the sounds of production and railway crossings are audible in the immediate vicinity and some of you may feel discomfort due to this.
